Dorothy Fagan Studio by the Pond

Known for her Colors, Dorothy Fagan is both artist and designer working in oil paint, mixed media, pastel and fiber art. She creates large landscape paintings, fine art prints, hand painted fabrics, and one-of-a-kind clothing.

At her Studio by the Pond, you will see abstract landscapes and floral paintings inspired by her gardens, the surrounding landscape of river country, and her travels in France and Italy. Let her lush sunsets, marsh scenes, vibrant autumn trees, and delicate pastel sunrises capture your heart and soul.
